Hi, everyone! Now that December is here, winter break is around the corner. For a lot of us, that means we are looking forward to some down time. Considering that the presidential election results are still looming over my head, I’ve been thinking about using my break to mobilize and educate myself about prominent issues. But while taking action is great, it’s as important to make some time for myself to sit back and relax. So today, I’m thinking about the following (and more):

  • Is being an activist a full-time thing?
  • When is it OK to take a break?
  • Why should I invest energy in self-care when I can use it for a cause I care about?
